An Evening of Painting...






Or
"What I did while Mr. Wonderful was gone".
It was just too hot for me to travel with my handsome (and hard working) husband to a ballgame this evening so I stayed home instead and painted.
Well, I drew, then painted, then drew again.
I should just paint and then do my details...
why, that's too simple! I'd rather make it harder on myself, ya know?
I was going to keep these to myself but decided to put them out there in the universe and see what they bring home to me...
I started a "simple" little flower painting (no, really-it was going to be just a quick little painting...) to use in my book (the one that already has countless hours spent on it) (but that's okay - I love it!) and the next thing I knew it was getting dark outside, I missed lunch, dinner and the evening news...
Hmmm...It happened again - lost all track of time, oblivious to what is going on around me...
I'm sure that it happens to a lot of you too. It seems that it just goes with the territory - the life and mind of the artist. Or really any creative soul.
I love it, this getting so wrapped up in what you're doing that the outside world just...goes away...

So - here ya go two posts in one day! After an entire week of daily posting!
And more drawings, more painting to enjoy!
I hope that all of you have a great evening and a restful night of pleasant dreams.
Sleep well my friends.

Carol,
I'm so glad you shared these! What style you have-they are so bright and beautiful. I know what you mean about losing track of the time, it is such a wonderful feeling to get lost in "the creative world."

I love the signature from the previous post (the cobbler sounds delicious, too). Your book is turning into a masterpiece. Your paintings are delightful, whimsical and full of energy.
